My Grandparents' 50th Wedding Anniversary Party, June 10, 1960

"The young boy on the left is cousin Jimmy (9), Elizabeth (17), John & Jean (14) and Gary (13). I remember liking the dress I wore."

"I believe the top hat belonged to grandpa. The party was held at the Van's Bayridge apartment. I remember that there were so many people there that the party spilled out into the hallway."
